72 who says that detroit should have all of bankruptcy fun. neil: san bernardino, california, not far behind, city wants to crackdown on union benefits now way out of line, so out of line that city fears without the filing it will be finished, michelle fieldses said better to cramp down on unions now for their own sake as well as taxpayers sake. stuart acuff disagrees and said that the workers were promised their pensions, michelle, you
11:32 pm
think they have to do this now. >> any decision that takes power away from the union is a good decision, san bernardino was originally i middle class nice area, has turned into tons of foreclosures, and tons of poverty, the reason has to do with unions they got involved in the city council elections they put tons of money to ensure that union-backed piticians got elected and made sure that public sector unions got overly generous with salaries and benefits. neil: you don't think there was a lot of hapless oppositions and the left and right, some of whom never supported by union known who was just clueless? >> the majority from the left with liberal policies they got san bernardino into this mess. neil: stert you agree with that? right. >> yeah, right. no, neil, look. pensions are sacred obligation,
11:33 pm
a commitment by a government of the united states they should be upheld, they have be carried through. many public employees, a lot of people do not realize that many public employees are not allowed to pay into social security, if you cut their pension you cut their retirement, that is cops, firefighters could people -- sanitation workers losing everything in their supposedly golden years. that is note happen,. neil: stewart, we have chatted about this before. a lot of that life is unfair no doubt that is you an fair for a lot of peak who depend on it -- a lot of folks who depend on that. but those promised benefits now had them taken to a government entity that is paying them pennies on the dollar life goes that way? >> then, the answer to that, is to bargain harder, in the future. but not to cut what is already been obligated.
11:34 pm
what is already been committed to. >> these were promises made, politicians of either party could not fix that, what do you make of that? >> everyone in this economy is suffering, san bernardino industry was moving out of there, everyone was suffering, and what did city officials do? they had higher salaries, looking at a firefighter in san bernardino, $150,000 a year, police lieutenant, can on his last day, get a pay out for $230,000, you don't think that is secon second esive in -- exce in a badconomy that is too much. neil: i think this is excessive when 7% of population owns 63% of the country as well. >> get out of here, we're not talking about, that we're talking about san bernardino, you know, i think unions are a
11:35 pm
bunch of thieves, they go they get them -- >> come on michelle, that is ridiculous that is ridiculous. >> they give -- >> we can arg who yo argue who , but, reality, city is looking to a bankruptcy filing. maybe at a fraction of what they are supposed to be, what do you think message to be. >> one more factual point. in the private sector, pensions are protected by federal law. b not in the public sector because of the 10th amendmen states right, in private sector you may not get your whole pension, you will get significant portion, it is wrong in t public sector for cities and judges toe allowed to pay pennies on the dollar of public sector workers.
11:36 pm
>> but private are often paid pennies on the dollar, that was case we're arguing over how many pens, i am asking do you think that is litmus test. whether in detroit or san bernardino, unions have to do something, wake up smell the coffee or everyone will get burned? >> that has already happened. we saw it when the uaw and federal government saved price water, we see hard bargaining all over the place. but we don't need to take more money out of the pockets of people who spend it for this economy. this economy, needs as much spending power and consumer power. >> michelle? you are biting the recovery, and the hands that feed it. >> calpers say tt san bernardino owns 320 million in unfunded liabilitiy that is too much money, how are we going to recover the economy in san bernardino, if calpers apt ul
11:37 pm
this money, a third of all population in san bernardino lives below the poverty line, there needs to be something done, not just give it to calpers. >> all right talking about california retired persons, thank you, both we'll see what happened in san bernardino in the days ahead. in the meantime, before ron there was jack, think reagan's tax cuts were a big deal in the 80s? you should hear the drive jack k was getting pushing tax cuts of his own in the '60s. >> $ 10 billion will increase purchasing power o american families, and business enterprises, in every tax bracket. my mother made the best toff in the wor.

11:41 pm
create other jobs and other salaries. neil: sounds almost like ronaldinronaldreagan that was jn 1962 talking a need for tax cu cuts. now ironically kennedy won out,ly did not live to see it. his successor lyndon johnson did, enjoying the boone that jfk predicted. to investor, wilbur ross said that remember the other significant story sandwiched in between. people forget it. >> they do. i can't imagine why, but they
11:42 pm
do. neil: you know, amazi is that kennedy had a fight on his hand with liberals in his party. buhe was in the pro serves cobbling together enough support that was realized by a successor. but it was an uphill fight. >> in those days there were me moderates in the congress. now there is an extreme polarization, that makes it more difficult to det compromise through. neil: i was looking at deficit, 12 billion-dollars. but, the idea that you could grow your way out of this, rather than just cut our way out. today, we have both grow and cut. what do we do? >> i do think that tax moderation would be a good part of the solution, it is significant to note that european union, not a very right wing group, has told france,
11:43 pm
they can't raise more taxes they want them actual to make spending cuts. most extraordinary thing to have eu tell france, that 45% of the economy is already drowning in tax. that is the percentage of the economy that taxes take in france, then the government, is 53% of the economy on the spending side. how on earth do you grow in any responsible fashion a country with those benchmark numbers. neil: i wonder, this is same president, steel industry for hikes, but, you menoned about there were more moderates then. i think that people who charactezed john kennedy as a liberal on social issues i would agree. but he was very pragmatic on fiscal issues. for what worked on phy fiscal issues, that is lost i think in
11:44 pm
the democratic party. >> i don't know if it is laughter on they just don't care, i can't imagine they don't know about it they have to know about kennedy and his tradition, but gaither. neil: i guarantee new none of retrospect journeys we'll be going on media world will tax cut thingome up that is my thinking, but i could be wrong. >> i heard that some of them claims that tape you played was not -- >> it was doctored. >> we going to show you, when full tape, those remks, multiple speeches, but leaving that aside, we tried everything to stimulates economy. we tried everything else, you are the bilonaire, business man, but simple journalist this me says try this, we have tried everhing else it has all been a failure.
11:45 pm
>> i think there are things that we could do to build the economy without spending more money, the shale thing is a phenomenon very much en vogue. neil: fracking that sport of ing. >> a milon wells fracked, no one has been killed by a fracked well. neil: they are all waiting for that big disaster to come. >> any industrial process is bound to have some sort of a problem on the line. but, shale is a safe activity. and it is stimulating the economy. the president said he was thees 100 billion more infrastructure spending issue instead of that guy a government, there is a is a 100 billion shovel hungry projted in the shale gas experting a, you need licenses that shale gas to countries without free trade agreements in u.s., ready to go. they have been ready to go f years. neil: talk about hostage to the
11:46 pm
extremes in your base. unions, already whining about healthy care law, they realize ethis is costing us. also about administration's position on keystone, if your core saysnough on issues like this, that should tell the president and harry reid, nancy pelosi something? >> you would think, you would think. u know they would bee tone deaf to the right wing but it would be strange if they were tone deaf to the unions. neil: bill clinton was savvy enough to get on the -- >> i think that clion was good for the economy, he had a planned budget, as far as i could see. >> he was pragmatic. >> it is not just a political thing, i think that problem with a lot of left now, is the are
11:47 pm
so idealogical they can't see straight about any other solution. >> wilbur ross thank you very much. i urg you to go to our site, looking at that john kennedy irk have been arguing for something that would seem to be iconi on the right but back then he saw it as only way to improve the economy that could use aoose. he got the goosing sadly after he was gone. >> remember some steve jobs returned to apple? time for bill gates to suit up and do the same? weekdays are for rising to the challenge. they're the days to take ce of business. when possibilities become reality. with centurylink as your trusted partner, our visionary cloud infrastructure and global broadband network free you to focus on what matters. with custom communications solutions and responsive, dedicated support, we constantly evolve tmeet your needs.
